Learning and Growing Together

Welcome to our school

Broadwindsor School is a happy village school with high expectations of its pupils and staff. We believe that all children have the right to a full, broad and engaging curriculum and that their social, emotional and moral needs should be taken carefully into account.

Our school has a family feel where everyone is nurtured and encouraged to their very best. High standards are important to us especially in literacy and numeracy and this is achieved by ensuring a love of learning is sown and grown.

The school also prides itself on the sporting, musical and creative arts opportunities it provides its pupils so that their talents can be promoted.

Thomas Hardy class went to Lyme Regis on the 5th July to support their history and geography topics. They had a super day including seeing the newly unveiled statue of Mary Anning.

Celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee before the end of the first half of the Summer term, the children sang the National Anthem, planted 3 trees, sang one of the Queen’s top 10 songs and then enjoyed a ‘street party’ with parents. Children had also composed poems with local poet, Peter Roe, during the week, and these will be displayed at the village hall during the village’s celebrations.

Head over to our Science curriculum page to see the wonderful week we had for Science Week!.

Our Science week ‘Designer Flower Competition’ winners – congratulations!

Broadwindsor village community came together on Tuesday 15th March to commemorate The Lost Pilot – a Belgian pilot who fatally crashed his aircraft into the side of Lewesdon Hill in 1942. A memorial was unveiled in his honour in the woodland. Our Year 5/6 pupils read poems they had written, and words were spoken by his great niece, Benjamine, together with a representative from the National Trust and Andrew Frampton, local farmer who uncovered this story whilst isolating with Covid. The poems can be read on our history or english pages.
